As another year ends, the CGM staff has come together to award Game of the Year to deserving titles of 2015. After a lengthy and heated debate on podcast, and a vote from the CGM staff all over the world, we have crowned our GotY picks! Eight categories that span all year and a wide range of genres. These titles are the best of the best of 2015 and demonstrate unique qualifications that set them apart and above in 2015. Here is our pick for Racing Game of the Year.
In the realm of racing games you either go fast, or get left behind. Racing games need to challenge their players with high speeds, precise controls, and most of all, exhilarating fun. From open-world street racing, or traditional tracks, these games speed past the rest.
Nominees: Need for Speed
Forza Motorsport 6
Winner Need for Speed Whatever your level of experience in racing games, there should be something to your liking here, as the arcade-style gameplay means that knowledge of real-world cars and physics have very little to do with one’s ability to drop in and enjoy the world of Venture Bay.
For everyone else, though, the game’s return to Full Motion Video cutscenes featuring a posse of young, energy drink-guzzling, car-loving, fist-bumping misfits will help you to be sucked up in the silly drama and races as you work your way through the single-player experience.
